Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control at Palace Green, all planned events as part of Balloons InDurham at this location have now be re-arranged to take place at The Sands, as part of the Durham Pride celebrations. Our thanks to the organisers of Durham Pride and the Freeman of the City for inviting Balloons InDurham to this event. Click here for more information.


The Tin Foil Astronaut

Gala Theatre


The Tin Foil Astronaut

Presented by Kitchen Zoo

Today is the day of the space race. A race to put the first human on the moon. But our astronaut isn’t quite like the others…

Alba has been in training and she has even made her own rocket. Can she really power a rocket with crisps? Are there robots in space? Will anyone ever listen to the smallest of space explorers?

See if Alba really can make it all the way to the moon.

Suitable for 3-7 year olds.



12.00pm, 2.00pm and 4.00pm



£7 (£5 conc)
